Written by Brazilian composer Marcos Valle, this song was originally titled: Samba de Verao. It was first popularized by the Walter Wanderly Trio in 1966. and reached Platinum status in 1970. It reached easy listening charts in the USA by many artists: Johnny Mathis, Andy Williams, Vikki Carr, and Connie Francis, but it is most remembered by Astrud Gilberto's version that was widely televised. A slower version was produced in 1965 by Brazil '65, by Sergio Mendes and Wanda de Sah.
Its free to enjoy!
This beloved show tune was first sung in the Broadway musical Roberta. Its first recorded performance was by Gertrude Niesen, and then Ray Sinatra, Frank Sinatra's first cousin. The song was reprised by Irene Dunne, in the 1935 film adaptation with Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and Randolph Scott. Later, it made the music charts in 1959 by the Platters, and countless vocal artists have reprised it.
Here is my link to hearing and seeing the Goddess Venus. She was the Goddess of love and desire. This one is unlike the earlier version which was in a Jazz style.
I am a new artist, and I need you! Please share, share, share this one! It's in my wheelhouse!
I just love Jazz music, and I can only hope you love listening to me singing it!
What can I say? We all know that Sade is the Queen of Cool Smooth Silky Jazz that will melt your soul. She is one of my favorite artists! Here I take some really slick music and set it to a storyline!
It would be appreciate it! These productions are a lot of technical work!
What can I say? This Hard Rock song was completely out of my wheelhouse, but I believe I nailed it. I was quite impressed one day when I listened to Paul Rodgers, the Rock vocal King. I decided to do a female version! I received over 2,000 views on YouTube within two days!
First performed brilliantly in the stage musical Porgy and Bess, this song is timeless and classical tune that mirrors a southern folk spiritual-lullaby. Later, it was sung by many fabulous jazz vocalists: Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, and others to name but a few, for its beauty and breath of feeling. I hope you enjoy my concept and my interesting use of green screen video use.
Come on! Please help me out!
Here is my harmonic version with fantastic video dancing! Put on your dance shoes and enjoy!
I decided to be in Cole Porter's great musical piece, "I Get a Kick Out of You," mainly because it is so Theatrical, and theaters are now closed due to Covid, which is really a terrible thing. This song was first performed way back in 1934 in the Broadway Musical "Anything Goes."
In 1983 Michael Jackson released "Thriller," to adoring crowds of fans! His video went viral, and it still is viral. It has had the most powerful lasting impression during Halloween's throughout the years. I do my version a bit differently (comically), since it parodies his version, and musically it is definitely different at the end. I get to hit some really high operatic notes, which is always fun for a singer. Also, as the ghost I do not do the Thriller Dance. I also resemble Glinda the Good Witch here, lol. I hope you enjoy your Halloween!
I will be thrilled and excited, but not scared!
Here I am playing Catwoman bemoaning her Werewolf boyfrend! Yes, I decided to do another Halloween Haunt with "Spooky," since it is well, just fun to do! This Halloween classic was written by Sharpe and Harry Middlebrooks, Jr. , released in 1969 as an instrumental song. In 1979 it was released by Atlanta Rhythm from the album Underdog. What a great tune to rock your Halloween party!
It is free for great entertainment! So don't be scared to subscribe!
This song was written by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse for the musical "The Roar of the Greasepaint-The Smell of the Crowd, first performed back in 1964 for the UK tour, and then in 1965 for the Broadway cast. Later, the song was covered by fabulous Jazz singer Nina Simone for her 1965 album "I Put a Spell on You." Later, the marvelous Michael Buble covered the song with a full orchestra. My version is slightly different than both of these versions. Please enjoy!
Here is my version of this wonderful retro 1926 song composed by George Gershwin. with lyrics by Gershwin. This vocal jazz great was performed by Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald notably. It was first performed in the Broadway Musical "Oh, Kay" in 1926. What an oldie, but goodie!
Here is a classic country song that will warm the coddles of your heart. No one in the world could or can sing like Patsy Kline, who juggled her life as a Country Western Music Star, and a wonderfully dedicated mother. She is just as appreciated today, as she was yesterday, timeless music! It's really tragic that Patsy didn't have more time on Earth, to sing like the angel that she was, since she was at the prime of her life--at the time of her tragic death. I tried to emulate her warm and endearing spirit with her beloved song.
Ok, so I am not a young pretty Pop Star like her, but I really liked this song, and I thought that this song was so unique, so, why not? I know I am not the package Producer's covet, but you only live once, right? I always like to mix things up, keep everyone guessing. For this video, you can watch some modern dance movement (from the waist up, hah-hah) with some psychedelic MP4's which is always fun. This is a tear jerking song about unrequited love, passion, desire, and unfortunately, rejection. I think most of us can relate, right?
